Come out for a fantastic YA event.
ABOUT TEEN FRANKENSTEIN
High school meets classic horror in Teen Frankenstein, Chandler Baker's modern reimagining of Mary Shelley's gothic novel.
It was a dark and stormy night when Tor Frankenstein accidentally hits someone with her car. And kills him. But, all is not lost―Tor, being the scientific genius she is, brings him back to life...
Thus begins a twisty, turn-y take on a familiar tale, set in the town of Hollow Pines, Texas, where high school is truly horrifying.
ABOUT CHANDLER BAKER
Chandler Baker grew up in Florida, went to college in Pennsylvania, and studied law in Texas, where she now lives with her family and an ever-growing pile of books. Although she loves spinning tales with a touch of horror, she is a much bigger scaredy-cat than her stories would lead you to believe. In addition to the High School Horror series, Chandler is the author of the young adult novel, Alive.
ABOUT BOYS OF SUMMER
Get swept away in this breezy beach read about love, family, and the true meaning of friendship.
Meet the Boys of Winlock Harbor…
Grayson Cartwright: Golden Boy. Football Prodigy. Troublemaker.
Mike Metzler: Local Heartthrob. Surfer Boy. Hopeless Romantic.
Ian Handler: Army Brat. Musician. King of Sarcasm.
Best friends since they were kids, Grayson, Mike, and Ian were hoping for another epic summer on “The Locks”, filled with clambakes, bonfires, and late-night swims in the ocean.
But that was before Ian’s dad never returned home from his last deployment. Before Mike had to take on more responsibility in order to help provide for his family. Before Grayson’s accident left him with an injured throwing arm and an uncertain future.
It’s clear this summer on the island is shaping up to be very different from those Grayson, Mike, and Ian had come to rely on. And when the sacred code of dating a friend’s sister or ex is broken, it will push their friendship to the absolute limit, testing their loyalties in a way that could either break them—or save them.
ABOUT JESSICA BRODY
Jessica Brody is the author of several popular books for teens, including Unforgotten, Unremembered, 52 Reasons to Hate My Father, and The Karma Club, as well as two adult novels. She splits her time between California and Colorado. Visit her online at JessicaBrody.com.
Mad Max meets Firefly in the exhilarating sequel to the sci-fi novel Tracked.
Cash, the prince of Bisera and leader of the rebellion, is missing. Phee’s uncle James is dead. And Charles Benroyal, once again, is behind it all. Caught between grief, thoughts of revenge, and traumatizing flashbacks of battle, Phee struggles to aid the resistance and prove her worth, even as she attempts to reconcile her growing romantic feelings for Bear with her loyalty to Cash. But when Benroyal’s attacks grow bolder, no one is prepared for the sacrifices Phee will have to make to win this war once and for all.
With the high-stakes action of The Fast and the Furious, a swoony love triangle, and a wholly original science fiction world, Marked will have your heart racing until its breathless conclusion.
ABOUT JENNY MARTIN
Jenny Martin is an author, a school librarian, a book monster, and a certified Beatle-maniac. She lives in the Dallas area with her husband and son, where she hoards books and writes new ones.
Fiona has a chance to leave her dark past behind.
Fee receives an email from a stranger named Lily, a countess who claims to have known her now-deceased mother. Lily invites her to live in her Scottish castle as an au pair for her young daughter, Poppy.
But the family secrets she brings with her will either destroy her . . .
When Fee starts hearing and seeing strange things around the castle at night, Fee is terrified she’s inherited her mother’s illness. She tells no one.
Or set her free.
Revealing her true identity might be the only thing that can release Fee from her tragic past. But will anyone believe her? Can Fee even believe herself?
ABOUT MEREDITH MOORE
Meredith Moore graduated from Harvard University with a degree in history, focusing on early modern England and France. She lives in Houston, Texas, where she loves pumpkin spice lattes, nineteenth-century British literature, and road trips. She is the author of I Am Her Revenge, which School Library Journal called “a refreshing and dramatic tale with a fearless and fragile protagonist.” Find her on Twitter @writermeredith.
